Without context quantity is meaningless, hence, at least two.

This thread is silly and may be the work or a spammer or sock puppet, mentors please check. I am glad everyone is having a good time though, so it may be worth keeping for awhile.

Rhody... :redface:

Uhh... okay... 7Hz.

Go. :uhh:
f = 7Hz
t = 1 / f = 1/7 seconds
l = c / f (where c is the speed of light in a vacuum) = 4 x 10^7 meters.

You cheated.How did you get velocity without first knowing what length is?

The most fundamental quantity is blue of course.

Nope, L = 6 inches. It's a broken metronome on my desk at home that clicks away like mad, and V = 0 because it's stationary.

Damnit, are you watching me while I shower or something?

It is my daughter's favorite number. It has the following bizarre feature she discovered:
In a base 26 number system where a=0, z=25, 'car' is a perfect square whose root is bl=37.

Yeah, that's my favorite number for the exact same reason. :uhh:
